All of our predictions, stats and the user poll for Zamalek v El Mokawloon are shown below (inc. the best betting odds).
Zamalek, who won their previous game, will hope for a similar result following a 4-1 Premier League success over National Bank of Egypt.
Their latest results really do illustrate the point that things are going according to plan in the Zamalek backline. The Royal Team have been stingy, seeing the number of goals that have gone in at their end during their previous six outings standing at 4. We will just have to find out if that trend can be sustained in this game.
El Mokawloon come into this match after a 1-0 Premier League win vs Wadi Degla in their previous game.
Emad El-Nahhas's El Mokawloon have slotted home a total of 6 times in the course of their latest sextet of matches. The aggregate of goals that have been scored against them during those same matches comes to 8.
Ahead of this meeting, El Mokawloon are without an away win for the past 2 matches in the league.

Team News: Zamalek
There aren’t many personnel worries, with just the sole fitness concern for the Zamalek boss Patrice Carteron to contend with from an otherwise fully-primed group. Mohamed Awad (Muscle Injury) is sidelined.
Team News: El Mokawloon
Due to a fully injury-free group to pick from, El Mokawloon manager Emad El-Nahhas doesn’t have any fitness worries to report ahead of this game.
We’re thinking that Zamalek will more than likely score at least once when they meet El Mokawloon, who might well find it a difficult task scoring a goal of their own.
We’re therefore expecting to see a pretty comfortable 2-0 winning margin for Zamalek come full-time.
